Washington Arbitration Week 2023: Dispute Resolution at International Organizations

Washington, DC

Jeffrey Lehtman and Maria Lapetina will speak in Washington Arbitration Week 2023 on December 1, 2023, in Washington, DC. Lapetina will present, as part of panel moderated by Lehtman, "Dispute Resolution at International Organizations."

This panel will examine how international organizations and multilateral development banks address disputes through internal and external proceedings. From the make-up of the independent tribunal or sanctions board in internal sanctions proceedings to strategic considerations involved in commercial litigation, international organizations and their various stakeholders must navigate complex legal issues distinct from more traditional commercial actors. This panel will seek to address the diversity of these issues, including a discussion of recent court precedent relating to the immunities enjoyed by international organizations.
